i love prophet muhammad

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“I guarantee a house in Paradise for one who gives up arguing, even if he is right; and a house in the middle of Paradise for one who abandons lying even when joking; and a house in the highest part of Paradise for one who makes his character excellent.”

[Abu Dawud]

I can never get enough of the Prophet’s (pbuh) beauty; he was so sensitive to people’s pain. He was their comfort when they were hurting. Can you imagine a grown busy man stopping to sit down and comfort a child hurting due to the death of his pet bird for as long as he needs? He did. Even when he was in pain himself, he would still comfort others.

When people ask me what I love most about him, I always say his beauty. It is fair to describe him as the most beautiful human being, a trait which takes a lot of strength and courage. There’s so much to learn from his personality alone. 

In the battle of Uhud we find the greatest sacrifice that He made because His life was littered with sacrifices.
It was sprinkled with sacrifices.
Everywhere you look in his life, he’d given something up:
This the Great Musab Ibn Umair (رضي الله عنه‎‎)
So he’s in the battle of Uhud, and for those of you who don’t know.
Uhud was a very difficult time for the belivers.
The archers of that time they didn’t stay on their positions during the Battle.
The young archers had not listened to the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ)
- He told them, do not chase this war’s spoils, Money, don’t come after it.
He said, I need you to stay on top of this mountain and no matter what’s happening if you see the birds eating our bodies, don’t come off of this mountain.
You are our last protection.
But during the battle of Uhud at a time it looked like the believers had won.
At one point it looked like the Muslims had Triumphed.
And all of a sudden these archers saw all the believers going and chasing these spoils of war, this money, all the armor and the gold and everything the Quraish left behind, so they became incensed with the love of wealth.
And at that time [Khalid Ibn Waleed] was not a muslim, He did a resurgence, a second attack around the mountain.
But right there the Archers left their Positions so the Quraish went behind to the Position of the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ).
And the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) was attacked to the point where his helmet dug into His cheeks.
And there were companions that had to jump in front of the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) to take arrows that were flying at Him, and there were even rumors swirling in the battle that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) had died.
And now here comes the Great Story of Musab Ibn Umair.
He sees this happening, He had the flag that has the Kalimah on it, to represent the side of the believers.
He has the flag in his hands.
And He sees the Prophet (ﷺ) is being attacked.

So he starts yelling Takbir and he starts calling out, to draw the attention away from the army that’s attacking the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), So he takes his horse and he rides as fast as he can and he curves to take the army away from the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ).
And that works, the plan that He has, it works because they draw away from attacking the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ).
But now he Knows that he’s gone.
At that moment he had to make a split decision, Who do I love more,
Myself or the Messenger of Allah?
And the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, none of you will believe, until I am more beloved to them than their own selves.

So Musab Ibn Umair, he runs and he takes his horse and he knows that this is it, He knows that he’s going to be trampled, he know that he’s running into an army where he is One and there are 70, 80, 90 people about to attack him.

But He still wants to make sure that he holds that flag of Islam high.
So one person on the other side, from the side of the Quraish (Enemies), he targets the hand in which he had the flag, because this is a symbol of strength, the flag being up in air is a symbol that the Muslims are still strong.

So one of the Enemies takes his sword and he takes the arm that is holding the flag and he cuts that arm, he chops it off.
And Musab ibn Umair before the flag can even tumble to the ground he drops his sword from his other hand and grabs the flag and keeps it in the air,

The same man who cut his right arm then cuts his left so the flag begins to fall and he grabs it now with whatever he has left of his arms and holds it to his chest.
The flag is still in the air, but then he gets swarmed by the rest of the people and they said that at the time of his death there were over seventy sword and spear wounds on his body.
That was the answer to his question: who do I love more, Allah and his Messenger or myself?

So the Sahabas who survived the battle, they’re going around giving Salams to the martyrs.
They got to the body of Musab Ibn Umair and all of them started Crying.
And when Muhammad (ﷺ) saw his body, you know what He said?
He said: (Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah . Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration - (Al- Ahzab: 23)
This is the Ayah that Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) recited upon the body of Musab Ibn Umair.
You know we can recite these ayahs but when these ayahs were recited by Rasoolullah (ﷺ) It was something else.
So then the Prophet (ﷺ) and the Sahabas after the battle was over; He came to bury the Muslimeen, the Mujahideen, the Martyrs, and then when they looked at Musab Ibn Umair, they searched through his wealth and they did not find anything in his wealth to cover him.

When they searched through his Home and his wealth to cover him,
All they could find was a piece of cloth to wrap him up in, the burial shroud for Janazah, but when they would cover his head his feet would show and when they’d cover his feet his head would show.

And Muhammad (ﷺ) says WAllahi there was a time when I did not know a person who had more luxurious life than this man. and today out of his love of Allah and Rasoolullah (ﷺ) and this deen of His,
He has sacrificed in a way that he has nothing to even cover his body after he has been martyred.

And the Prophet (ﷺ) Said: O Musab Ibn Umair, we didn’t find anything of the wealth just to cover your whole body and bury you in.
You donated it all for those who were in need.
In Jannah is where we shall meet.

The most beautiful feeling is when you can feel yourself getting closer to Allah. It’s like Allah is pulling you closer to Him. And it just reminds me of that hadith qudsi where Allah says, “…if he walks towards Me, I will run towards him.”

The amount of love I have for Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) is something words can never explain.

They say you can never love someone whom you have never seen.


I haven’t seen my Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. but I love him dearly.
